Difference Between an Order of Protection and Injunction Against Harassment
Arizona has three types of protective orders. The first one is an Order of Protection. An Order of Protection requires there to be a familial type relationship between the parties. The parties could be married, divorced, or have a child together to qualify for an Order of Protection.
The next type of protective order in Arizona is an Injunction Against Harassment, which applies when there is a familial type relationship between the parties. Lastly, the court can issue an Injunction to Prohibit Workplace Harassment.
Obtaining an Order of Protection in Arizona
To obtain an Order of Protection in Arizona, you need to complete paperwork at the actual court where you are seeking the Order of Protection. We advise our clients to either have us present when you appear before the court on your Order of Protection case or have us meet with you to ensure the allegations you are making support the issuance of an Order of Protection.
Fighting, Dismissing or Modifying an Order of Protection
An Order of Protection is a matter of public record, which means employers, co-workers, friends, and family can all obtain a copy of the Petition for Order of Protection containing the allegations made against you.
The court can also order you to turn your firearms over to law enforcement, prohibit you from possessing firearms in the future, can order you to not be present at certain locations and can order you not have contact with your children.
It is imperative, therefore, that you have an attorney who has the experience to present all the evidence necessary to fight your order of protection to convince a judge the Order of Protection should be dismissed or modified. Our Arizona family law attorneys have the experience to assess your case and determine the best way of dismissing or modifying an Order of Protection.
